If your tumble dryer's drum shaft has worn out, there are two tell-tale signs: the drum will be making clanging noises when the machine is running, and the drum will be moving around inside the cavity of your dryer. Replace a worn out drum shaft pin with this spare from Hotpoint to restore your dryer to working order.

Genuine spare part for select Ariston, Creda, Crusader, Hotpoint, Indesit, Jackson and Proline tumble dryers. Prior to ordering, please check the list of appliances to ensure this is the right part for you.

    The parts were fine but the method of accessing the back of the drum to fit them as shown in the video for the Indesit IS60V was completely wrong for my IS60VUK and turned a potentially 30 minute job into several hours of problems due to inaccessible fixings not evident in the video. The correct method for the fitting the shaft and bearing for this model is to remove the fascia, front panel and inner plastic panel/filter housing, not the rear panel as suggested in the video. This is much simpler and quicker, avoids dismantling the fan and heater, only requires the disconnection of the three wires to the door switch that are relatively accessible and many fewer screws. I did write a step by step guide on how to do this but there is character limit on these review boxes. Note that the torx screws self-tap into the drum shaft fixing plate so there are no threads visible when you open the packet.

  • Q What size of tap is required to refix the shaft? 2 Answers

      The screws you remove are self tapping, so no tap is required.

      Hi there, the screws you need are Torx head, T25 - so the tap would correspond to this.

  • Q does the shaft have a hole in for a split pin? 2 Answers

    the holes on the plate are obvious to secure one end of the drum shaft, but does the pointy end of the shaft have a hole across the shaft to allow the fitment of a split pin? This is for a replacement of a Creda Excel T632CW Condenser Dryer drum shaft.

      A split pin can be used, but there is a special "S" shaped pin that goes in this cross drill hole. Always use a washer between bearing and split pin/"S" pin.

      yes this shaft is drilled to accept a pin, use the pin that is in the old shaft, not a split pin, the pin is just a single, easy to fit.

  • Q Can't find shaft for hotpoint TC71P, will this work. 1 Answer

    I can find a baring and baring locator bracket showing as compatable but not the shaft. The current shaft has a c clip washer instead of a pin to secure but if this is compatable with this baring and carrier, will it work. The current shaft is held in by 3 screws. Could you help at all. Thanks

      An engineer would order Stock Number: ES546701 as this contains most of the common wearing parts for your machine including this.

  • Q Hi, i have a hotpoint dryer TVM562P which has the pre-attached drum shaft, can this be removed so i can purchase the new fitting kit? 1 Answer

    By Ian D - West Dunbartonshire - 31 January 2014

      We believe that you can carefully drill out the fixings to the drum shaft and fit a kit like Stock Number: ES546701. We would welcome your feedback to confirm this is possible.

  • Q Will this fit a drum with a riveted mounting plate? 1 Answer

    Will the old mounting plate be able to be removed by drilling out the old rivets and fitting this in its place?

      Hi Andy, the best way to tell if this shaft will fit your dryer is to check your model number is listed above. If not, search for your model number in the bar at the top of the page to list all parts available for it.
